Street hockey, longboarding cap Seafest sports

The Stanley Cup playoffs had ended but that didn't mean the kids of Prince Rupert had had their fill of Canada's game.

The Stanley Cup playoffs had ended but that didn’t mean the kids of Prince Rupert had had their fill of Canada’s game.

The Prince Rupert Minor Hockey Association and Tim Horton’s made sure of that. The organizations sponsored and hosted their day-long street hockey tournament at Seafest 2014, with multiple different divisions and age-groups.

Junior Scrappy beat Red Bulls by a score of 2-1, to claim the novice division, while in novice/atom girls, Flaten’s Ice Angels defeated NSK Contracting 5-2.

For the atoms, the Ice Wolves shutout the Haida Salmon Kings 5-0 and for the peewees, Northern Landscaping beat Storey’s Excavating 4-3.

The bantam edition of Storey’s Excavating exploded for seven goals against the Bounty Hunters in their final, winning 7-5 and for the men, Pump House doubled up on Scrappy, 4-2.

Rupert Raiders downed the Ball Hockey Babes 4-0 to win the ladies’ tourney.

Along with street hockey, there were more than a few waterfront competitions on the last day of the festivities. The swim for survival race saw “Slippery when Wet”, featuring Kris Scott and Matt Murray take first-place over runners-up Michael Donohoe and Ambrose Kent of “The Nauticals”. Sean Carlson and Melissa Rektar finished in third.

Gabriel Mueller and Tyson Hopkins conquered the kayak firedrill race, with Dennis Lincoln and Lares Isaksson taking second and Angel Hoffe and Cloe Morgan capturing third.

The first annual long board “King of the Hill” race featured 13 competitors with Jesse Millwater (16) crowned the winner and Ethan McDougal (17) named the runner-up with Caile Kendall (17) taking third.

Marc Page would like to thank the event sponsors Sector 9, Landyachtz, Rayne Long boards, Protec, Sandbox, Long Collective, Sitka, Osiris and Dakine for prizing and the R.C.M.P., Northern Health and the Special Events Society.

Marty Johnson took the title of overall rodeo champ at the Harley Rodeo, winning the slow race, the weenie bite and coming in third in the egg drop.

Jeff Adams came in second in the slow race, third in balloon toss and third in the weenie bite while Garin Gardiner took third in the slow race, second in the egg drop, second in Honey, I’m Home, and second in the weenie bite.

Chris Rose finished first in the egg drop and second in balloon toss with James Adams finishing first in Honey, I’m Home and Richard Ferguson coming in third in the same event. Les Wagner took first-place in the balloon toss.
